Investing in local healthcare secures the supportive care that you or a family member may one day need. The best part: your care can be delivered right here, in your community, without having to worry about long distance travel. The end result: better healthcare outcomes and long-lasting relationships with those who were right by your side along the way.
Meet Danielle. She and her son, Alex, found the support they needed in the programs and services that are available at Children’s Village. Without the generous support of our community, such specialized care could only be made available at a distance, in major cities where there are larger populations to serve. Alex is now healthier… leading a productive, promising life.
This #GivingTuesday, November 28, lend your support to the amazing specialized care and services that exist at Children’s Village. Your gift will help others, like Danielle and Alex, find solace in the healthcare that resides in their community.
